I have a new born and just saw this snake as I was backing over him in the driveway. Does anyone know what kind of snake it is?

Yup. That's a legless lizard. Totally harmless.

Disgusting , just to look at it.... Most of the snakes I have seen here are harmless. However, I do not leave my garage door open , since we have had several neighbors have a snake "visitor" in their garages.

We used to call them "glass snakes" . Still a lizard though.

When I saw the OP, I looked through my reptiles book and couldn't find a matching snake anywhere. Now, I know why! Page forward through geckos & skinks and I found four species of Glass Lizards. Bleh... Said they have eyelids & ear openings and when mature, they're bluish green.

I'm hoping it's a dead snake/lizard/thingy after you backed over him

Why do people move to areas with diverse animal populations, only to be afraid of them.
One of the very few things I like about living on this damned sandbar, is it's diversity of plants and animals!

That glass lizard is one of the coolest, magical and friendliest creatures on earth.
It is entirely beneficial to you and your living area as well.
What a heartbreak it is when people respond to them with hate.
